Review: Colliding with Destiny
Author: Sarah Jakes
Short Book Description:
Find a fuller, richer life by letting God direct your destiny.
The story of Ruth is a journey of transformation. By allowing God to transform her circumstances, Ruth went from a widow who would be excluded from society to a wife with a secure and protected future, a future that ultimately paved the way for the birth of King David! Her story is full of collision–loss, heartache, poverty, even shame–but she never let her past define her. Instead, the most painful time of her life became her most pivotal, propelling her to a destiny she never imagined.
Perhaps you have a past you’re struggling to overcome. If disappointments, whether a result of your own choices or the actions of others, have kept you from being your true self, this book is for you. Follow Ruth’s life and discover the hope available to each of us. Your yesterday does not have to dictate your tomorrow.
Despite your past pain, you, too, can find redemption and restoration.
Reading this book was such an encouragement to me. It’s the perfect devotional even though it isn’t really set up as one. Each chapter deals with different parts from the story of Ruth in the Bible.
I’ve never read anything by Sarah Jakes before, though I do have another one of her books on my shelf, Lost & Found. Now I can’t wait to read it.
I haven’t finished this book as I’m sort of using it as a day-by-day devotional. I’m on chapter 9 right now, but what I have read is really good and inspirational.
If you are going through a hard time or just need some encouragement or uplifting, this is the book to read. I would recommend this book to any woman, especially if you are a Christian needing some uplifting on your journey.
